Panasonic Microwave Oven

Panasonic is one of the largest companies in the world, and has become a household name over the long time it’s been in business. They sell their electronic products in every developed nation in the world, and their microwave ovens are no exception. Panasonic microwave ovens can vary greatly in price, quality, size, and a host of other factors; there is not a single factor that unites them other than the brand name they carry. However, many people feel safer with their products being produced by one of the world’s largest electronics companies. For this reason, it’s important to know which of their product function best for any specific user group.

Panasonic Corporation came into being in 1918, although at that time, it was known as Matsushita (its official name until late 2008). At that point, they were a small company that only produced lamp products, and they slowly grew into a prominent electrics company around the time of World War II. At the end of that war, they underwent one of their biggest periods of expansion in response to the growing demand for electronic devices. They first began producing equipment (mostly televisions) under the Panasonic brand name in the early 1960’s, and expanded its reach into Europe in the late 70’s. Today, Panasonic has grown into one of the 100 largest companies in the world.

Most Panasonic microwave ovens have a price range between $100 and $250 USD. These are countertop microwave ovens, which are the best selling type of microwave in general. Most households contain a countertop oven, and Panasonic’s models, at least their newer versions, typically have at least 1200 watts. This is more than the average microwave in most households today, although it is about average for other microwave ovens produced in the past few years. Any price difference between these models can be attributed to their size, power (wattage), interface and appearance.

Another type of Panasonic microwave oven is the over-the-range design Panasonic produces. This design is meant to fit into a correctly-sized cabinet design. They are held in place by the furniture above the lower surface, as opposed to countertop microwaves, which can be placed anywhere. Over-the-range microwave ovens have become much more popular in recent years, as modern kitchen designs have incorporated microwaves into the kitchen as much as the traditional oven. However, the disadvantage of this type of microwave is that it can be fairly hard to install. To help with this, Panasonic does offer a mounting kit to make this easier for their customers. However, some will still need a professional to install their over-the-range microwaves correctly.

Another type of Panasonic microwave oven is the convection oven. Many people complain that microwaves to not cook food in the same way as conventional ovens, and leave food soft, especially breads. Convection ovens contain a fan, and this allows the microwave to blow its heat directly on the food, instead of just heating the entire microwave. This has the ability to brown food, and allows the microwave’s cooking style to more closely approximate that of a conventional oven.

Panasonic does offer a few more types of microwave ovens, like the commercial microwave, which is designed for professional kitchens. However, the former three are the types most sold to domestic consumers. Panasonic offers a minimum warranty with all of their electronic equipment, but the warranty on specific products can vary greatly depending on the part of the world it is sold in and the promotion of the microwave. Some warranties only last a few years, and some can last more than five years. It’s important to check the warranty on the microwave before you buy it, especially if you have had previous trouble with electronic equipment.
